Podcast: Dr. Joel Bennett, Become a Connoisseur of Time

What is a “connoisseur of time,” and how can we observe our life through experiences rather than a clock? Dr. Joel Bennett explains.

Joel Bennett, Ph.D., is President of Organizational Wellness & Learning Systems (OWLS), a consulting firm specializing in evidence-based wellness technologies to promote organizational health and employee well-being.

He is a primary developer of “Team Awareness” and “Team Resilience,” evidence-based culture of health programs recognized by the U.S. Department of Health and Surgeon General as effective in reducing employee behavioral risks.

In 2022, Dr. Bennett was acknowledged with the "Lifetime Achievement Award" from the National Wellness Institute and, internationally, with the "Positive Leadership Award" from the Positive Leadership Institute. Dr. Bennett has authored/co-authored seven books, including "Raw Coping Power," "Heart-Centered Leadership," and "Your Best Self at Work.”

His article, "Become A Connoisseur of Time," can be found in the March/April issue of Spirituality+Health here.

“We have to recognize that this unfettered, gluttonous approach to time has gotten so out-of-hand that it’s moved us away from those precious moments of contemplation. The distinction between time and what’s happening—I only make that distinction to point people back to the preciousness of this life.”

In this episode, Dr. Bennett and Rabbi Rami talk about addiction, contemplation, and not taking life for granted.
